When I hear of anything referring to the beautiful land of Italy, I think of rolling hills, buildings that ooze character and the simplicity of nature. Italy, for all of it’s high fashion and scrumptious food, has retained it’s authenticity which makes it naturally charming so you can imagine how excited I was when Kate & Company, a local Arizona Event Planning Firm, sent me a batch of Tuscan inspired images from a recent wedding they coordinated at The Farm at South Mountain.
Old World brought to you by The Farm…
The couple shares a love of Tuscany, triathalons and Slow Food. What’s that you ask? Part of the fun of this post was finding out about this grassroots movement that should have been founded by my husband’s grandfather, Nonno, who is always only halfway done with his dinner while we are scurrying around the kitchen washing dishes and getting ready for dessert. No joke, this darling man from Italy takes his sweet time at the dinner table and I can see why this style of eating appeals to Italians- they sit around and gab, delight in their food and really experience dinner. Michael and Stephanie were so smart to design the flow of their reception around this concept.
I really love how glamour is blended seamlessly with rustic touches- notice the mismatched bottles used on the tables while a shining disco ball and an elegant chandelier hang above. This atmosphere is sure to suggest that guests stay a while.
A special thanks goes to Kate and Company for sharing these beautiful details with us!
